Early Quenya


adjective. many-swallows of autumn

An adjective appearing in both the Qenya Lexicon and Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa of the 1910s, glossed “many-swallows of autumn” in the Qenya Lexicon as a combination of ᴱQ. lin- “many” and ᴱQ. tuilindo “swallow” (QL/53, PME/53). It appeared as the untranslated adjective lintuilind(ov)a in the ᴱQ. Narqelion poem (VT40/8), and a more accurate translation might be “✱many-swallowed”.
